So sail away, my lover dear

On England’s hills and dales, we roamed
Up tall mountains, we did climb.
Now the Lord has taken you home.
I wish it were my  time

Will I never see your smile
On pale and sandy shores.?
How you loved and for a while
You unlocked my door.

Then your heart was worn away
When you saw my scars.
But they say one coming day
There’ll be no more wars.

Even in our human form
Alien life can grow.
Of two lovers, one’s forlorn,
And it shall be so.

I would not wish to go the first,
Leave you pale and thin.
Of two choices one is worse.
The Lord wants you within.

So sail away, my lover dear
Sail into the deep
I took you to the river near.
So,  there, alone I weep.

I send  you all my memories
I send you all my thoughts
And I know, whatever is,
You were whom I sought.

You caught me up, you put me down
I don’t know where I be.
But I will smile and I will frown
I don’t know if I’m me.

Losing, losing, losing  you
Losing our dear life.
Losing, losing ,losing you
Am I still your wife?

 

I’m not me as you’re not here
Who have I become?
But I’ll live, despite my fears.
My life is not yet done.

 

I lost a leg, I lost a hand
I lost my heart and soul.
Pray for me my lover and
I may then be made whole.

Look at me, from where you be.
Look at me again.
When you look, whom do you see?
I still have my pen
